about this book

Mal de amores es la historia de una pasión entretejida entre la historia de un país, de una guerra, de una familia y de varias vocaciones desmesuradas.

Emilia Sauri, la protagonista de esta inqietante novela, nace en una familia liberal ye tiene la fortuna de aprender acerca del mundo de quienes lo viven con ingenio, avidez ye entereza. Cobijada por la certidumbre de que el valor no es tal sin la paciencia, busca su destino enfrentando las limitaciones impuestas a su género y los peligros de su amor por dos hombres: desde su infancia por Daniel Cuenca, inasible aventurero y revolucionario, y en su madureez por Antonio Zavalza, un médico cuya audacia primera está en busca la paz en mitad de la guerra civil.
